Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Vatican Recognition of Israel

Adopted by the CCAR at the 98th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
1987

WHEREAS the Vatican rationale for withholding full diplomatic recognition of Israel on the ground of non-finalization of boundaries is not now, nor has it ever been, acceptable, and

WHEREAS the Vatican's recognition that the Abrahamic Covenant is irrevocable has yet to include a recognition that the Patriarchal Covenants include the joining of the land of Israel to the people of Israel,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the Central Conference of American Rabbis calls upon the Vatican to extend forthwith full diplomatic recognition to the State of Israel and its representatives.
